The Project is grateful to Manuscripts and Archives, University of Cape Town, for kindly allowing us to transcribe this Olive Schreiner postcard, which is part of its Manuscripts and Archives Collections. The date of this postcard is provided by the postmark and the addressee and the address it was sent to are on its front. Schreiner stayed with her sister-in-law Fan Schreiner and her friend Lucy Molteno in Cape Town after her arrival from Britain on 30 August 1920, moving to a boarding-house in Wynberg in late October, where she was resident until her death on 11 December 1920.
1 Dear, the buttermilk was such a treat the nicest thing I’ve tasted
2for months. Next Saturday I am going to Lady Innes’s at Newlands to
3spend a few days. I am looking forward so to sleeping in the cool airy
4room. Thank you dear for the sweet note you wrote me.
